Nigerians Respond to Buhari’s Interview with Arise TV

Nigerians Respond to Buhari’s Interview with Arise TV stating that the president is fully aware of what is happening in the country but simply doesn’t care.

After President Muhammadu Buhari’s interview with Arise TV, Nigerian Twitter came to the conclusion that Buhari is fully aware of what happens in the country. 

Some critics were of the belief that the president is not aware of the country’s present situation, stating that there are cabals giving orders while the president is relaxed.

As the president responded to questions asked during the Thursday,  interview, a lot of Nigerians on Twitter certain that the president is fully aware of the problems the country is facing.

However the Nigerians who commented in the morning of Thursday 10th June, 2021, said the president “didn’t just care”.

Nigerians on Twitter stated that when the interviewee asked Buhari about the suspension of Twitter in the country. He simply laughed it off and said he doesn’t want to talk about it.

The presidents actions has now confirmed a report by American news publication ‘Daily beast’ that it was Buhari who ordered that Twitter be suspended in the country because he was “angry” that Facebook also joined the latter to remove his controversial post  regarding insecurity.

According to the American news paper publication, “anger” is was the word used by those close to the president in describing how he felt on Friday 4th of June, 2021, when his assistants informed him that Facebook had followed  Twitter’s footsteps by deleting a post he made on both platforms.

Furthermore, the president was also asked about the October #EndSARS protests and his response was that the protests were aimed at removing him from office.

The way president Buhari responded to some other  questions asked made Nigerian Twitter users conclude that  the president is aware but “he just didn’t care.”

Here are some responses:

The Arise TV interview shows it’s best to hear from the president, not the presidency. Now we’re certain Buhari is aware of:
– Twitter ban, he even laughed it off.
– Fulani herdsmen attacks, he called it villagers fighting.
– Unemployment, cos the youths don’t behave well.

Twitter ban? He’s aware.
He laughs it off.

Herdsman massacres? He’s aware.
He calls it villagers fighting.

Youth unemployment?
He’s aware. He says you all are badly behaved. Na why.

Next time, an idiotic Buharist tells you Buhari is not aware, he’s aware.
He just doesn’t care.

From this interview, it’s actually clear that Buhari is aware of everything going on in the country. He just don’t give a damn

Presidential interviews are important because at least, it helps us understand the mindset of the president. Not some SSAs commenting on issues all day long.

President Buhari should speak more. We will still disagree with some of his views, but he begged for this job.

I laugh you if you think Buhari is not aware of the sad and ridiculous occurrences in this country. With his wicked laugh, this man that I’m watching speak on Arise TV now knows exactly what he’s doing.

The reason Buhari’s handlers prevent his from talking to media is not because he is ill or there is anything wrong with him mentally. It’s because they know who their oga is and what he will say.

After watching Buhari’s interview with Arise TV, it is now obvious that this country is on auto pilot. This man has no vision or plans for this country. Just laughing at questions about important national matters.
